Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Trav’ling onward from day to day
Over the vale of time,
We will follow the King’s highway
Over the vale of time.

Gathering home, gathering home,
Meeting and gathering home;
One by one, when our work is done,
Meeting and gathering home.

2 Trav’ling onward, our course we keep,
Over the vale of time;
Now we scatter and now we reap,
Over the vale of time. [Refrain]

3 What if through trials our lot may be,
Over the vale of time?
Rest remaineth beyond the sea,
Over the vale of time. [Refrain]

4 We are nearing the golden strand
Over the vale of time;
Soon we’ll enter the soul’s bright land,
Over the vale of time. [Refrain]
